Terminator 2: Judgement Day

Skynet is activated on August 4, 1997 as described by the T-800.[1] Judgment Day follows within a month on August 29, 1997.


  • Since Sarah[2] and the Terminator both share the same information about Judgment Day,[3] this date has not changed as a result of Cyberdyne managing to reconstruct and create the Terminators from the remaining parts of the T-800 from The Terminator. At this stage, quality may have improved, but the timing has not yet changed.
